On today's podcast, I read read my obituary for Aaron Swartz, and the afterword he wrote for my upcoming novel, Homeland. I met Aaron when he was 14 or 15. He was working on XML stuff (he co-wrote the RSS specification when he was 14) and came to San Francisco often, and would stay with Lisa Rein, a friend of mine who was also an XML person and who took care of him and assured his parents he had adult supervision.
